The offense against the Gophers was once again stalled with Cardale Jones at quarterback. The Buckeyes totaled their fewest amount of offense in Big Ten play this year racking up only 376 yards. Coach Urban Meyer has brought calm back to the Buckeye faithful, as he named J.T. the starter for this weekend. "(Barrett) will be the starter unless he does not have a good week of practice," Meyer said.
Illinois has lost three of their last four but are coming off of a 48-14 win against Purdue. The Fighting Illini have had a lot of changeover this season. Earlier this year head coach Tim Beckman was fired and interim coach Bill Cubit took over. Earlier this week the school fired athletic director Mike Thomas. Despite the changeover the Illini will be looking to return to bowl season this year with a sixth win and end the season on a better note than it started.
